The project is located in an area with a ​​steep slope, in a subdivision located north of Mexico City, where the climate is cold and humid in the rainy season.

With these parameters, the house is located on a square platform on two levels. The first level is partially buried and houses services and a play room, the second level is above the median ground level.

At this level we designed a glazed central courtyard, which allows for ventilation and sunlight in the rooms and social area of the house during all months of the year.

The tiled pitched roofs converge towards this courtyard. They respect the rules of the subdivision, achieving a visual dynamism that changes the relationship of scale and perspective.

In a subtle way, the inclination of the roofs gives greater openness towards the abundant vegetation of the site, while inside, the roofs give scale and warmth to the living space.
